IoT City Hack
Saturday April 8th + Sunday April 9th
Calling Amsterdam’s artists, technologists, designers, software developers, hardware engineers and all round creative thinkers. We want to bring your IoT ideas to life!
To coincide with International IoT day on the 9th of April, Makerversity, Sensemakers and StartupAmsterdam are hosting a makerthon to prototype the best IoT idea to be brought to life on the streets of Amsterdam. We’re looking for the most jaw dropping installation, product, service or app that nurtures Amsterdam’s community, changes behaviour and brings a healthy dose of joy to the city.
If you or your team have an incredible idea that can utilise Amsterdam’s wealth of city wide data we want to hear about it! Maybe you have an idea to use data to curb noise pollution in the Red Light District or a way to use the city’s ubiquitous bike population to create a stunning installation piece. As long as your ideas use IoT and data from the City of Amsterdam, the rest is up to your imagination!
Submit your idea to us by the 24th of March and we’ll select 5 of the best to take part in our makerthon. Each of our 5 ideas will be given €500 to take part. During our two day event we’ll be pairing you with the best of Amsterdam’s mentors to help shape your idea into a prototype. The lucky winner/s of the event will be awarded with business mentorship by StartupAmsterdam, a 6 month membership at Makerversity – worth €1,800, a €1,200 cash prize and the chance to present in front of the city’s leading funding opportunities.
This is your chance to make your mark on the fabric of the city – to create an awe inspiring piece of work that makes a meaningful impact on the streets of Amsterdam.
